Nail In tire....Repair or Replace??

I have 400 miles on my new Versys, get home this afternoon and there's a nail in my rear tire. It's stuck in there just off left/center and doesn't appear to be a large nail, I'm not even sure it is all the way through but don't want to pull it out until I decide if I'm going to shell out the money for a new tire or just get this one patched.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I just bought this product. According to them you don't have to replace the tire if one of their plugs does the job. If more than one is needed, like four, then replace.

Ask the motorcycle shop what they think.
